New Delhi: The office of the President of India had assumed a new meaning in the hearts of billions of Indians from year 2002 to 2007 – the Kalam years at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.
Kalam was the people's president. His endearing nature and undying commitment to see India progress and prosper had turned him into one of the most popular personalities of our times.
One of his biggest passion was to interact with students to instil in them a fire to succeed in life.
His personal life story starting from a poverty-ridden childhood, to a struggle to get education, and his contribution to India's missile technology was and will always remain a source of inspiration for the country.
Dr Kalam was as well versed with the Koran as he was with the Bhagvad Gita – a secular Indian in the true sense.
The common man of India is in grief today.
RIP Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. pic.twitter.com/suAfU8SoWS
